The camera performs really well due to some basic technologies. Everything begins with the sensor and this is why the device comes with a powerful 12 megapixel choice. This sensor is capable of producing clear images both during the day and during the night but it can also deliver great video quality files at 720p.
For night-time performance, the camera powers its 32-LED lights flash. The flash comes with a range of 60 feet. And the best news is that the infrared flash is invisible allowing the animals to act naturally.
The camera comes with an LCD display. The menu uses easy navigation principles to make the whole process of setting up as quick as possible. Selections are made with easy navigation which is one of the staples of Moultrie.
The design of the camera is based on a robust construction. The camera needs to be strong enough to hold 8 AA batteries and the SD memory card. One of the reasons behind the robust construction is the long life of the device. With the AA batteries, you can expect to gather up to 17.000 pictures. This is why the camera needs to be strongly made. The A-30i is indeed a step up in terms of quality also.
One of the issues some users have encountered is related to the mount system. Although the camera is compatible with a Python lock cable, it only comes with a nylon strap. While the strap may not represent a complex mount approach it can be easy to set up even for new users. So it is not all bad news regarding the mount, it up to you to position the camera the right way with the nylon strap.
The Moultrie A-30i is a capable camera and with extended features compare to the A-30. The camera comes with a good 12 megapixel sensor which can power the images even in difficult lighting. This means you can expect good results up to 60 feet. Another advantage of the premium sensor is the video capability. The camera can record videos with 720p quality. This means there are plenty of reasons to consider the model. Considering the price range and features, it is a good alternative for both the new and advanced user.
